Detrainment and braking of snow avalanches interacting with forests
Abstract. Mountain forests provide natural protection against avalanches. They can both prevent avalanche formation in release zones and reduce avalanche mobility in runout areas. Although the braking effect of forests has been previously explored through global statistical analyses on documented avalanches, little is known about the mechanism of snow detrainment in forests for small and medium avalanches. In this study, we investigate the detrainment and braking of snow avalanches in foresteddoi:10.5194/nhess-2021-289 fatcat:gnwshnpfxvhv5obr2pdujmq36a
